Roger Ebert Slams Ryan Dunn on Twitter

by at . Comments

Jackass star Ryan Dunn died earlier today and already, film critic Roger Ebert took him to task over reports that he drank before getting behind the wheel.

Dunn's drinking buddy claims Ryan had at least three beers and three "girly shots" before hitting the road. He was driving when he crashed and passed away.

Ebert, of all people, had this to say this afternoon:

Ebert TweetSources say Ryan Dunn spent four hours in Barnaby's of America in West Chester, Pa., before he got behind the wheel of his Porsche this morning.

One of his friends says Dunn had three beers and three shots between 10:30 p.m. and 2:10 a.m., but he was "not too drunk to drive."

However, according to another person who was inside the bar that night, Dunn was "wasted" and "had a lot to drink."

Either way, what's your take on Ebert's Tweet?

It's not like the dude said, 'ryan...... blah blah'.. he said friends don't let jackasses drink and drive. they are jackasses. -The movie... get it? That's prolly what he meant by that. Besides. It's not like he knew he was gonna die. Millions of people drink and drive and make it home safe. It's not INEVITABLE to die that way. Some get lucky. He just didn't. No one can tell the future. It was stupid for him to drive, yes. But No one here has any right to really say anything, even me. Considering, none of us knew the dude personally. So how about everyone stops the gossiping.

@Deanna..I believe the word you were looking for is "sympathy" you uneducated twit. Also, I'm not saying that drinking and driving is a good thing. I am simply pointing out the fact that what happened isn't his family or friends fault so have a little decency and let them grieve in peace.

I have to agree with Donna on this one. Come on people, let's cut the hypocrisy here for a minute, I know NONE of you have EVER gotten behind the wheel of a car after drinking. BULLSH**!!
Also, how do you know that his friends didn't try to get his keys. Were you there? Furthermore, what happend to common decency for f**k sake, let his family, friends, and fans greive in peace.

a 34-year old man, who gets behind the wheel drunk, kills his passenger and could have killed many others, deserves no respect. Period.

Not a hero either way, he could of killed your kid or your wife or somebody you loved. He in fact killed his friend in the car along with himself. Ryan Dunn was seen drinking before and went off a road with no other people around. If it was proven he was drinking and had alcohol in his blood during the accident then this makes him a murderer and a drunk driver who kills people, not some hero. If it's not proven then he was speeding and a murderer still. Wait until you lose somebody to a drunk driver. Oh wait, you haven't lost somebody to a drunk driver, so who cares right, it's not somebody you knew who died.

Twitter is so trashy. It has just been a breeding ground for feuds and insults. Twitter must be taking lessons from Miley.

Assholes.
